For most schoolchildren, swinging, sliding and see-sawing trump reading, writing and arithmetic. While administrators, governing board members and parents at St. Vincent Elementary school may not entirely agree, they think the kids’ free play is pretty important too. The school is organizing fundraising efforts toward expanding the playground at the back of the school.
